For f*ck sake—is anyone ever going to score in this thing? Is this the lamest WS ever? Come ON!
This game is so f*cking boring. It doesn’t even really feel like a clinching game. Weird.
Series a foregone conclusion, lots of stranded runners, no clutch hitting….Not MLB’s finest moment. We’d rather watch the Latin Legends.
Buck: “What a banner year it was.” Is he kidding? Everyone forget those hearings and BALCO already???? What exactly is printed on the banner, Joe?
Dye. Finally a clutch hit.
Side note: Boy are the Astros…white.
I noticed the same thing. But it goes further – is EVERYONE IN HOUSTON AND AT THE BAR FOX SENT THEIR CAMERAS TO IN CHICAGO WHITE?
As for Dye’s hit, why, with a flamethrower on the mound, do you play a guy so far to pull? Where was Adam Everett playing, in Ensberg’s pants?
Crap… now I’m going to have to hear four months of kissing Ozzie Guillen and Scott Podsednik’s asses. I’m practically sick already…
Uh, gross. That might explain Ensberg’s ARodesque performance in the Series. But this series begs the question: Which team was more WS-inept, the 05 ‘Stros or the ’04 Cards? One thing’s for sure–Phil Garner does not impress.
A ring for Big Hurt isn’t such a bad thing, I guess. A ring for AJ Pierzynski does kinda stick in the old craw, though.
ps – Can we please start stovin’ now?
Why does the National Leauge even bother coming to the games if that is the way they are going to play them?
PS. John-YF drop me an email so I can send you the ten dollars that I now owe you for the Yankees making another poor decision.
In all, a White Sox championship is better than the alternative: what if we had to watch Fox incessantly show the jackass Bushes celebrating an Astros win? I wonder why, when Babs was there with son Neil, Fox didn’t caption him “All-Star Thai whore loving adulterer Neil Bush”?
In fact, I’ll take having to deal with Pierzynski, Everett, Guillen et al celebrating over that family having anything to smile over any day of the week – they at least deserve their good fortune. Can you imagine if you were the poor cameraman assigned to keep your equipment trained on those two all night?
(and why no cameras at the home of Chicagoan Patrick Fitzgerald?!)
